The Cisco Visual Networking Index Forecast predicts that globally, there will be nearly two billion internet video users, excluding mobile-only, by 2017, up from one billion Internet video users in 2012, said Cisco. Some three trillion internet video minutes will be generated per month, equivalent to 6 million years of video per month or 1.2 million video minutes every second.
Cisco predicted that by 2017, 3D and HD Internet video will comprise 63% of consumer internet video traffic. It also said internet video-to-TV traffic will increase nearly 5-fold between 2012 and 2017, from 1.3 exabytes per month to 6.5 exabytes per month.
Video is also tipped to account for 58% of all business internet traffic in 2017, up from 31% in 2012.
Overall, the firm said that global IP traffic, both fixed and mobile, will reach an annual run rate of 1.4 zettabytes ― more than a trillion gigabytes per year – by 2017. On a monthly basis this is expected to reach nearly 121 exabytes per month by 2017, up from about 44 exabytes per month in 2012.
